Olympic Outlook: Sarka won the 2014 Grand Prix slopestyle at Copper with smooth and stylish tricks in difficult weather. She’s the proud owner of a solid backside 720 and as the TTR Overall World Tour and Slopestyle Champion in 2012/13 she’s got a legit track record of contest domination.
Potential Downfall: Sarka’s fallen behind a little compared to riders like Jamie Anderson, Spencer O’Brien, and Silje Norendal when it comes to the bigger spins. She’ll need to add at least one more spin above 540 to stay competitive.
